Perfect for sportives, long distance rides and rapid commuting the 2016 Defy features a relaxed geometry with compliance features which deliver a smooth, comfortable ride allowing you to ride further.

Features

Comfort and control

The Defy endurance geometry features a shorter top tube and taller headtube which provides a more relaxed riding position allowing you to be comfortable in the saddle for longer. This is combined with the D-Fuse seatpost which absorbs vibrations from the road increasing comfort and reducing fatigue. A carbon fibre composite fork also absorb road buzz as well as providing precise steering. Advanced models feature a carbon composite frame with precisely shaped seat and chainstays that add vertical compliance without compromising lateral or torsional rigidity.

Both the Aluxx aluminium and Advanced composite frames are lightweight and stiff for easier climbing, quicker acceleration and better handling. Wide range cassettes and compact crank on all models mean that you can take on any gradient with confidence.

Work, race and play

The endurance features of the Giant Defy make it an exceptionally accessible road bike for new and experienced cyclists alike. Sportive riders, mile crunchers and commuters will all love the wide gear range, compliance features and nimble handling that make the Defy such a joy to ride.

The Aluxx models are all available for less than £1,000 making them a perfect choice for the ride to work scheme. The Advanced models use race proven carbon fibre composite technology with top quality components all at affordable price points.
